Happy Wednesday, Pickswise Nation! We have another hefty MLB slate to sink our teeth into today, as well as tennis action across the pond at Wimbledon. Let’s dive into making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Rockies rock Dodgers again as Astros/Mets SGP cashes
The World Series favorite Dodgers were once again defeated by the Rockies last night as Colorado secured a 7-4 victory at home. LA will be hoping to avoid the sweep tonight, but that defeat did them no favors in their quest to edge clear of the Padres in the NL West.

Meanwhile, the Astros crushed the Mets 9-1 which was a delightful sight for the Pickswise Nation, as it led to our +362 same game parlay cashing! Both teams face off again today at 1:10 pm ET.

Nadal survives Wimbledon scare as Auger-Aliassime bows out
Rafael Nadal kept his hopes of yet another 2022 Grand Slam alive with victory over Francisco Cerundolo, but the Argentine did give him a scare after winning the 3rd set. Meanwhile, 3rd favorite Felix Auger-Aliassime suffered a shock defeat to Maxime Cressy.

Best Bet of the Day

MLB: Chicago White Sox vs Los Angeles Angels Over 7.5 runs
9:38 pm ET

This number seems significantly mispriced solely due to Ohtani being on the mound. It doesn’t take long to see that these teams can easily eclipse this total, as last night’s game ended with double this number. The White Sox may not produce the same 11 runs they scored last night, but they have the hitters that can produce a few off of Ohtani — and plenty more against their bullpen. Similarly, Ohtani can be great at the plate along with former MVP Mike Trout and a healthy Taylor Ward. Angel Stadium is the 6th-best ballpark for home runs and is receiving a 16% boost in that respect with the out-blowing winds for today’s game. Read our full game preview for White Sox vs Angels.
